How video can help your church build stronger relationships and deeper community

There’s no denying that digital communication has changed the way churches communicate. Consider video. You may be thinking it’s only useful for televised services or maybe video announcements, but video may hold even more potential than you’ve seen.

While gathering corporately is critical to connection and growth within the body of Christ, there are some exciting ways to incorporate technology into your church to enhance in-person connection. Check out these three ways video can be incorporated into your church ministries.

How video can help your church build stronger relationships and deeper community

  1. Use video to welcome all new guests. Taking the time to record a video series that welcomes first-time guests and shares about the various aspects of your ministry is an incredible way to cast vision and make sure every guest is informed about the ways your church is there to support them.
  2. Incorporate video into your weekly newsletter — or replace your weekly newsletter with a weekly video. We live in a world that is overrun by email. Video can be an incredible way to stand out and share important information and announcements in a way that church members might not read when skimming through their inboxes.
  3. Create a weekly video that dives deeper into your message. This is a great way to extend the life and reach of your sermons. Something as simple as a 60–90-second recap and challenge is a great way to extend your discipleship strategy throughout the week.

We are called to be all things to all people. In order to reach the unchurched in 2015 and better communicate with believers, we have to speak their language. Video is an incredible way to do that.

If you want to learn more creative ways to leverage video in your ministry, you definitely don’t want to miss our recent webinar with BombBomb, a strategic partner of Church Community Builder.
